If you have been to one of my nutrition workshops, you have seen this. If not, this is why you need to attend my workshops.
If you drink these (or any other protein shake like UMP, etc. that contains similar ingredients…)
Please stop …. They are toxic to your immune system & health. They are literally destroying your gut health. I know first-hand this particular one says it supports immune health.
Let’s look a few of the ingredients:
- Folic Acid (synthetic form, many people cannot break it down and use it) you want supplements that have folate ~ not folic acid
- B12- cyanocobalamin - cheapest synthetic form that your body cannot easily use as it’s not bio available. Sadly, most of the vitamins in this drink your body will never absorb. You want supplements with methylcobalamin B12 - The natural form.
- Sucralose - destroys your gut, and immune system. It May Cause Diabetes, Increases Risk of IBS and Crohn’s Disease, linked to leaky gut, can cause weight gain, etc. https://draxe.com/nutrition/sucralose/
- Carrageenan - is a known carcinogen: highly inflammatory and toxic to the digestive tract, and claim that it may be responsible for colitis, IBS, rheumatoid arthritis, and even colon cancer.
There are a few others, but those are the top 4.
It is appalling to me that doctors recommend this drink after weight-loss surgery. And the fact that this label says it’s “supporting your immune system” is terribly misleading!
BOTTOM LINE: Check ingredients ~ they matter. Next workshop 4/27/22
